Bio and Links
Bio Photo I had added some whiny drivel here about the site removing photographs for months. Well, on March 23rd 537 of them magically reappeared. I confess not understanding and being well on the way to not caring. But that is not my nature.

My home is circa 1784. Its situation is such that it fell in the line of battle during the conflict between the States. When my father died, I was too early at the cemetery for the appointment concerning the necessary arrangements. To pass the time I paid a visit to the antique shop close by. Displayed there was a book which possessed a title that gave me the idea that my home may be mentioned within. Upon opening it, the pages fell directly to a description and photograph of my old place. It was not intended for the purpose, but the volume became a much worn field guide as I sought to visit and photograph other antebellum homes in the vicinity. I pursued that objective with interest and vigor. This caused me to notice the old churches en route and I began to photograph them. Behind the churches were cemeteries. Cemeteries that I found to be serene and sublime, full of lore. In turn they led me here and I stayed.

No courtesy, no action. You churlish lot best steer clear of me.

Please do not post Certificates of Death on entries of my origin.

Thank you.

Just curious why you have taken so few photos at this cemetery; must have taken you longer to travel there than take the photos. I think this is the least photographed cemetery I have visited.

George, I was researching what turned out to be a different Purks line. Finding limited info on the ancestry sites, I turned to newspaper articles. Every now and then I get lucky.

No one owns history, whether an image or a thought and it belongs to all of us. The ownership of history would be a threat to freedom.

Hey George,

Nice finds, thanks for sending them my way. I have included them in my biker's tribute page.

That poor guy that was found murdered. MS-13 stands for Mara Salvatrucha 13, a notorious street gang that started in El Salvador and really flourished in Los Angeles. They are now one of the nation's largest bunch of worthless creeps.

Again, thanks and keep on graving!
